Paul, depends on how long he's been there. They go through stages and each time they progress, things get a little easier. Let him be your guide as to what to send. Remember, they don't have a lot of storage. Good luck to him.

Well, after graduating from Basic on 1-27-2012, my son tells me that he will be starting his HM classes on Wednesday. He is more than ready to get on with it!

Becky, My son has been at Hospital Corpsman A School for about 3 weeks now. He asked about having a car and was told that it was allowed, but that the parking near his dorm is very limited and was discouraged from having a car on base. He just takes a taxi when he wants to go somewhere on the weekend and splits the fair with a buddy or 2.

How is everyone, hope all is well with you and yours. I hear from the boy almost everyday, big change from boot camp. He has said he will be on the east coast, on a GM Frigate. He is very excited.

Talked to the boy tonight all is well. This week has been lots of paper work and not much else. he said next week sould be better. When we were in GL we did get to go on to the base. that was alot of fun. Nice to hear from him.

save for the hanger deck, space is pretty darn limited on a carrier as well!!!

Comment by Chris H. on February 2, 2012 at 6:47pm

Have to laugh because the carriers are "big city" life.  Before we did our Tiger Cruise (on a destroyer) we got instructions about bringing folding chairs and plenty of comfortable blankets to watch the movies on an interior deck which would have the doors open.  Then we got an apology message with DO NOT bring folding chairs, space is limited.  Once aboard, we knew why - some of the rabbit holes you have to navigate aren't big enough to get even folding chairs through.  LOL!
